After taking some time off from the blog to focus on finalizing things elsewhere, I have big news:
MY BOOK IS ALMOST HERE!!!
With two years in the making from conception to publication, my children’s book Daddy’s Different: A look at brain injury through a child’s eyes, will finally be available to purchase. This is not only a huge success for myself as a writer and spouse of a TBI survivor, but also a success for those other TBI families out there.
Thankfully, there are a lot of books highlighting the daily struggles of brain injury survivors and their caregivers.
Here are a few of my favorite:
Meditations on Brain Injury by Mike Strand
Written by a brain injury survivor, this book should be titled “The Brain Injury Bible.” It was the first book my husband read and completed post injury (reading is hard with a brain injury). The short chapters written in first person really connected with my husband as it seemed to say all the things he wanted to say but couldn’t. Check out Mike Strand’s blog.
Metamorphosis, Surviving Brain Injury by David A. Grant
Another survivor describing the secret world of brain injury; beautifully written as David was a writer before his injury. Thankfully he didn’t lose his ability to connect with readers. Check out David A. Grant’s Blog.
While these books help to increase awareness on this invisible tragedy, my new children’s book Daddy’s Different, will help put into words the struggles young children face when living with a TBI parent. Told through a simple story and beautiful images, Daddy’s Different relates to the smallest victims of the brain injury aftermath; the children.
Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:
And as always, thanks for your support!
